Today's Best Apps: Sky Dive North America, CamMe And Map Adventure

The App Store takes delivery of hundreds of new apps per day. The overwhelming scene makes it possible to easily overlook an exciting game, valuable productivity suite, etc. However, we have a solution. Today’s Best Apps tackles this problem by providing you with a handpicked and tested list of apps that are truly worth your consideration each and everyday.


CamMe by PointGrab (Free, 20.4 MB): This one trick pony camera app makes capturing portraits easier with gesture control. Instead of setting the timer and sprinting back into position, you can now initiate it while already in frame. First, raise your hand to an open palm state, as if you were signaling someone to stop, then perform a forward curl finger wave action to start the 3-second timer. Each step is followed by a confirmation sound.


Sky Dive: North America by Vertical Aim ($0.99, 226.7 MB): In this high-flying and nail-biting arcade game, you control a group of skydivers hoping to score big in jumps throughout North America. The idea of creating formations may seem very simple, but you'll need to compensate for drift, resistance, and most importantly, time. During each jump, there are a set of formations to complete. Move your divers into position as quickly as possible to assemble the layouts, then safely away to deploy their chutes before it's too late. The more formations you successfully pull off, the more stars awarded, which leads to more events available to enter.

Map Adventure by Adrian Fanaru (Free, 12.5 MB): Prove how much of a geography expert you are by competing against others in this challenging trivia game. For each round, there's a statement with missing location elements, such as city and landmark names, and a map. Using the clues from the statement, deduce the key item and pinpoint on the map as quickly as possible. The app contains three quiz bundles of increasing difficulty, 30 locations to solve plus a daily challenge, Game Center integration, and an ad banner. An additional 30 quiz items can be unlocked for $0.99.
